No Bake Granola Bars

Alan and the kids eat granola bars like crazy. They each have to have a certain kind and we go through two to three boxes a week, which gets expensive. I know several people that make their own granola bars, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon too. 


However, I try not to use my oven too much during the summer to keep the house cooler and our energy bill down. So, I decided to play around with several recipes I found online and create my own, no bake recipe. 


No Bake Granola Bars

2 c rolled oats
1 1/4 c peanut butter I used half peanut butter, half almond butter
1 c ground flaxseed
1/2-3/4 c honey
3/4 c dried cranberries or raisins or whatever fruit you want
1/2 c chocolate chips
1/4 c hemp seeds or almonds or cashews...whatever nuts/seeds you want

Mix all ingredients together and press into greased baking dish - I used my bar pan. Refrigerate to harden - they need to stay in the fridge or they will get really gooey. They're also really filling so I cut them in half.

Ewan has been asking for one all the time since I made them. I'm so glad that I found a way to cut our granola bar expense!

  5. Glad you found a recipe you like! We are still making ours (but they are baked so that they don't have to stay in the fridge - we are running out of room!) and freezing them:)

  8. I thought about freezing them too and depending on how fast they go and how much room we have, I might do just that.
